About iRelaunch

iRelaunch's vision is that every company with a campus internship program for entry level employees will have a mid-career re-entry program running side-by-side with parameters that match company-specific needs. Not only does this allow companies to most effectively tap into the high-caliber relauncher talent pool, but it also demonstrates a commitment to diversity and inclusion and can be broadened for other non-traditional career transitioners: veterans, military spouses, retirees, ex-pats, and even signals positively to Millennials.

Established in 2007, iRelaunch is the pioneering company in the career reentry space. iRelaunch runs career reentry conferences and events for employers and individuals returning to work after a career break, and also works directly with over 70 blue chip companies to introduce, implement and expand career reentry programs to engage with and hire from the return-to-work talent pool. iRelaunch has built a global community of over 70,000 individuals who are in all stages of relaunching careers.

A strong advocate for the unique value that relaunchers bring to the workforce, and for the employers that engage with them, iRelaunch established the market connecting employers with returning professionals. iRelaunch works closely with employers to develop paid re-entry internship programs for returning professionals. iRelaunch also works with “umbrella” organizations on initiatives in which groups of member or affiliated companies pilot return to work internship programs simultaneously and collaboratively. iRelaunch originated and co-leads the STEM Re-entry Task Force with the Society of Women Engineers, in which 25 global engineering-based companies, including some of the world's largest, are piloting re-entry internship programs; IBM, GM, United Technologies, Apple, Northrop Grumman, Cummins, Ford, Raytheon, Boeing, Dell, Johnson & Johnson, Ingersoll Rand, CDM Smith, Medtronic, Johnson Controls, Caterpillar, Millipore Sigma, Asurion, The Aerospace Corporation, Intel, Booz Allen Hamilton, GE Power and Schneider Electric. iRelaunch also co-leads the Financial Planner Re-entry Initiative with the Certified Financial Planner Board Center for Financial Planning.

iRelaunch's long-time connections with university alumni offices and professional organizations expand its reach to millions of relaunchers in the U.S. and beyond. Universities and professional associations engage with iRelaunch to provide turnkey career re-entry programming for alumni and members, through live events, webinars, and online content. The iRelaunch Return to Work Conference has been held 24 times since 2008 and is the signature event nationally for the relaunch market, drawing a combined audience of nearly 7,500 attendees. iRelaunch is regularly featured in the national press, including Good Morning America, The TODAY Show, CNN, National Public Radio, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, TED, Fox Business, Vogue, USA Today, Forbes, Fast Company, CNBC, CBS, Harvard Business Review and more. 

iRelaunch is certified as a woman-owned business by the WBENC.
